From Grand Hyatt Kauai Resort and Spa’s Poipu Bay Golf Course, the most dazzling view is of the Maha’ulepu coastline, the last accessible, undeveloped section of the south shore of Kauai. Golfers are mesmerized by the surfers and boogie boarders off the beach at Keoneloa Bay, which is also known as Shipwrecks Beach. (It was named that for the wreckage of a fishing boat in the 1970s.) A series of sandy crescents, nearby Poipu Beach may be the most popular spot on the island for snorkeling, swimming, wading and surfing. Looming as massive green backdrops above the golf course are Mount Haupu and Mount Waialeale and their craggy foothills. Another scene at the course is painted by the Mahaulepu Heritage Trail, which is dotted with beaches and a limestone sinkhole known as Makauwahi Cave and stretches from Keoneloa Bay to Kawailoa Bay.
